AGE Concern Eastbourne has been quietly caring for the people of Eastbourne for over 65 years, a record of local service of which we are justifiably proud.

On April 1 2011 we decided to remain independent of Age UK, and become a truly independent local charity; the only one of its kind in Eastbourne dedicated to older people and their families in our town and the surrounding areas.

We believe that every person should be able to look forward to later life with confidence; knowing that organisations like ours will always be there to provide help, advice and activities to promote independence and well-being.

With your support we can secure an even brighter future for older people in our town. You can help us in so many ways; through a gift of cash, a bequest in your will, or by donating goods that can be sold in our shops.

Our Mission

AGE Concern Eastbourne’s mission is to enhance and improve the experience of later life for people in the Eastbourne and surrounding areas through delivery of first class activities, services, information and advice designed to promote well-being for all.

Well-being is at the heart of everything that we do.  Our aim is to achieve well-being for everyone involved with our organisation so that all can enjoy a contented state of happiness, health and prosperity.

Hand-in-hand with the concept of well-being is the underlying determination that all our activities and services should aspire to excellence being delivered in a culture of continuous improvement.

Our organisation will aspire to be inclusive to all sections of society.  We will promote equality, value diversity and will treat everybody with dignity and respect.

We will conduct our business with a high degree of integrity, openness and honesty and will act ethically in all that we do.
